Engagement, Proposal Ideas

Our Favorite Proposal Spots in Miami

With its seductive beach culture, Latin vibe, and incredible nightlife fun, Miami is one of the hottest cities in the nation. The Magic City is also the prime place to pop the question. Whether you’re looking for traditional romance or a unique surprise, Miami has many pic-worthy spots where you can create your dream proposal!

Beachfront Proposals

Bill Baggs State Park

Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park is on Key Biscayne. This park includes the Cape Florida Lighthouse, the oldest standing structure in Greater Miami. The beach has tons of awards for Best Beach in the country, and  it has historical significance.  Hundreds of fugitive slaves escaped from here to freedom in the Bahamas as a stop on the Underground Railroad. For a beautifully serene and intimate beach proposal experience, head over here for an unforgettable sunset picnic!

Haulover Beach

One of the most scenic beaches in Florida, Haulover Beach features landscaped dunes, picnic areas, and dozens of cute lifeguard towers. Haulover Beach is located right between Sunny Isles and Bal Harbour, but this family-friendly beach is renowned for something very different: Haulover Beach celebrates its status as Florida’s most famous and oldest officially recognized public nude beach. In addition, it’s regularly ranked as one of the Top 10 nude beaches worldwide! Propose here for an absolutely wild and unprecedented experience! Go on a Tuesday to find a small food truck festival with local vendors and live music performances to celebrate afterwards.

Out and About Proposals

The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

The Vizcaya is the former villa and estate of businessman James Deering in the Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami. Wander through the extensive Italian Renaissance gardens, native woodland landscape, and a historic village compound. You and your future spouse will love the Mediterranean Revival architecture style, and can gaze at the Baroque elements that surround you. Propose in the Tea House, overlooking the water, for a magical moment. Then head to the café or the nearby Bellini to celebrate with a glass of bubbly!

Helicopters Over Miami

Grab your love for some high flying romance and amazing views of Miami! Helicopters Over Miami can show you the city like no one else. You’ll soar over Biscayne Bay and enjoy stunning aerial views of Key Biscayne, the Everglades, Miami mansions, and turquoise blue waters. You can custom tailor your tour, so if the two of you have memories of a special South Beach hotel or favorite beach, why not pop the question while your pilot flies right over it? It’s an adrenaline-filled experience that will last a lifetime.

Proposals with a Beautiful View

South Pointe Park 

South Pointe Park is a beautiful urban park with stunning panoramic views of South Beach’s shoreline, Fisher Island, and Downtown Miami. Take a stroll with your loved one to truly soak in the view, and propose at sunset. You could bring a picnic to the lawn for a beautiful meal, or head over to Smith and Wollensky for a higher-end celebration. You can even invite friends and family for a surprise party!

Fruit and Spice Park

Imagine exploring groves of exotic, tropical fruits like guavas and papayas with your significant other. Proposing among the 500 varieties of fruit, spices, herbs, and nuts at this 37-acre Miami-Dade County park. The epicure in your spouse-to-be will be delighted with your choice, and you’ll be congratulating yourself long before the proposal. The rules at the park are that while you can’t pick anything from the trees, fallen fruit is fair game. And you can always go have a celebratory treat after, like mango passion cheesecake at The Mango Café. 

Best Restaurant Proposals

Juvia 

Time your arrival at Juvia right, so you can catch the sunset through floor-to-ceiling windows, or in the rooftop dining room complete with vertical gardens. With panoramic views of South Beach and beyond, this penthouse-level hotspot is a great place to pop the question to your S/O. The menu mirrors the location, offering an eclectic mix of delicious and contemporary takes on Japanese, French, and Peruvian cuisine. 

Ariete

Dark, rustic, and with low-slung ceilings to help keep things intimate, the charming Coconut Grove restaurant exudes romance from every corner. The menu is built on sharing, and there is the option to splurge on an exclusive dining experience in its private room downstairs known as La Cava. Invite family and friends, or frame it as an intimate date night. Everything revolves around the wood-fired grill, as the master chef weaves his Cuban heritage into innovative American dishes. You and your S/O will be amazed by the radical mix of dishes; flirt over chorizo frita and croquetas, or converse over fancy foie gras with smoked plantains. Look no further for a warm and romantic proposal spot!
